Enhance your purchase
A hilarious romp around the world with an airline captain who's a 'very naughty boy'.
Captain Terry ‘Flash’ Gordon is a character created by Captain Jeremy Burfoot of Qantas
Flash's personality is a creation from a combination of all the dubious characters the author flew with in his career.
Flash has the philosophy of work hard and play hard. “Life is not a rehearsal,” says Flash. Like most pilots, he’s a total professional in the air but quite human the rest of the time.
He doesn’t suffer fools gladly and isn’t the slightest bit PC. And he’s totally fed up with the ‘Woke’ and the noisy minorities. So feminists, snobs, vegans, vacuous morons, the gormless and anyone who doesn’t like nudity should all read this book with their eyes closed to avoid being offended.
Flash is drawn to the opposite sex, generally thanks to that demon alcohol and ‘the curse’. But, even in this pursuit, he generally leaves his connections smiling or laughing at him as he scarpers off or sneaks out.
These are mostly true stories about Flash’s adventures with aviation and travel. On the adventure side, Flash has always said, “Never let the truth get in the way of a good story.” But, in general, all the stories are based on fact and actual characters, but with the names changed and a bit of judicious exaggeration to add humour.
This book is a collection of some of Flash’s recent adventures.
